If there is ever a team called the "Oxen" and had a logo like that... I would be interested in buying some merchandise.

I agree that Vegas could use black helmets with the reverse retros, and it also seems like the captain's patches are too close to the logo.

My only issues with the Vegas RR look is that the red looks too orange.  On TV they looked like the Ducks thirds.

Adjust your TV lol. According to trucolor, they use the same standard red (PMS 186 C) as every other red team except Montreal and Minnesota

It feels like such a cynical ploy to tap into the Chinese demographic to me. Designed practice sweaters are just such a waste of time in my opinion. 

 

This reads a bit like the cynic calling the kettle cynical.

It's also just one a basic red practice jersey so it really can't be that difficult to produce.

It this any different than the St. Patrick's Day warmups we see from teams in cities with large Irish populations? People enjoy being represented by their favorite team.

No, not really any different.

 

To me, they're the Canucks. Focus on that and don't pander to fan groups. Maybe something like the St Patrick's Day dress up doesn't annoy me as much because at least it ties into their brand.

 

I know I shouldn't care about this and I don't really. It is for a good cause so I'm ok with that obviously.

This is such an odd opinion. It's a practice jersey. It's the sort of thing fans like us should love because it allows teams to do these promotions without compromising the on-ice look. Something like this is totally harmless.

They do, during the game. When such things matter. Who cares what they wear during warmups? You don't even see those unless you're at the game.

Granted at least the St. Patrick's Day stuff is green but other than that...? Nah. The only team that can justify St. Patrick's Day stuff as "brand relevant" are the Maple Leafs thanks to the St. Pats throwbacks. 

 

Not that it matters. St. Patrick's Day, Chinese New Years, Hockey Fights Cancer, military appreciation night...all of these gimmicky practice jerseys are fine. They're worn for a short period of time before most fans even tune in, and the on-ice look isn't compromised. 
It's a harmless win-win for some good causes.

Just because it's harmless, doesn't mean I have to like it.

MOD EDIT: Can we please keep the comments on topic, discussing the actual jersey. No need to throw politics into these threads.

Nah I get what you mean. I had to check on trucolor to be sure. Maybe the lighting in that rink? It does look a bit more on the orange side in that picture

Or, you know, keep the talk to the designs and brands of the NHL and leave politics to political sites? Sound good? Thanks.

Are you a mod?

I am, and I'll echo him. Keep this focused on uniform and logo design.
